About Me

Purpose Of The Buddy Bench

Buddy benches were created to eliminate loneliness on the playground and forge new friendships. How does the bench achieve this? If a child is lonely, they can sit on the buddy bench. Other children will notice the child sitting on the bench and invite them to play. You can learn more about buddy benches here.

Memorial Buddy Bench Features:

What makes our memorial benches standout? They are durable, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing. Below are some of the top features of the buddy bench.

Powder Coating Color Options

It’s a buddy bench, go crazy with color! Hammertone Red, Bengal Blue, Weather Green, and Safety Yellow are a few of our popular color options. Powder coating is designed to withstand outdoor weather conditions without succumbing to rust, corrosion, and sun fade. You can view all our color options here.

Durable Bench Design

At Smith Steelworks, we manufacture memorial buddy benches that are designed to last. Each bench is cut from a single sheet of metal that is next bent into place. This allows for fewer welds; yielding a bench with fewer points of weakness. Our welds are fully closed to prevent moisture buildup.

Choice Of Inscription

Each buddy bench comes with the standard design along the bench back. You do, however, have the choice of name or other inscription underneath.

Stainless Steel Foot Pads

Stainless steel foot pads are used on the buddy bench. Since stainless steel is naturally rust repellent, it protects corrosion from creeping up the bench legs.

Buddy Bench Style Options

Classic & Classic Arch

The memorial buddy bench is available in two bench styles: Classic and Classic Arch. Along with style, 4′, 6′ and 8′ bench sizes are offered.

The memorial park and bench were dedicated November 4th, 2017 in Peccole Ranch. Cast into the concrete is a star for every victim that died from that terrible tragedy. Our team was humbled as we cut out each and every star and thought about those sweet lives that were taken too soon.
